DIY+I WEAR DIY: Dip it and bleach it (Dip-dye jeans)

After my success with bleaching my denim jacket last year, I have been having the hankering to do another bleached denim project. Then this lovely dip-dye jeans design started showing up all over the Internet and WHOWHATWEAR even did a DIY write-up for this look. But seriously, you don't need someone to tell you how to do it, it's really simple. So....... here's my DIY dip-dye jeans.

Well, they are not exactly jeans... It's actually a very sturdy pair jeggings (leggings+jeans) made from denim-like material. The elastic pull-on design makes this pair of jeggings soooo comfortable to wear.

I was actually planning to do a 3-tone spin to it, where the area above the crotch is the darkest and the lightest shade begins at the midpoint of the thigh. Unfortunately, it seems that the bleach that I used was not strong enough to bleach my jeans. So, in the end, I ended up with the normal two-tone jeans. Boohoohoo. 

Jacket (Fake leather jacket): random shop in Singapore
T-shirt (You don't mean nothing at all to me T-shirt)
Jeans (DIY dip-dye jeans): Kmart, DIY
Boots (Doc Martens Wannabe): Rubi, $49.95

Oh well, but I am still loving the way it looks. What do you guys think?

By the way, my t-shirt says "You don't mean nothing at all to me". I'm not a big fan of double negatives in English, but hey, it works well for a rebel look. Moreover, it was on sale for just $1. ;)

Sorry about the grainy pictures. I have no idea what went wrong. :(
